NY Sewer Discharge

This is good news for Public Notices relating to environmental alerts in New York City and only hope to see more preventative measures taken in regards to avoiding and preventing the discharge of raw sewage. Hopefully they will also realize that pouring pure chlorine directly into a waterway following the raw sewage doesn’t “help” really and can be even more detrimental. In an uncontrolled environment such as a river, the chlorine kills good bacteria too, not just the bad.

Riverkeeper is an organization which provides a good resource for latest news.
